Petit Mail: The Preschool Subscription
“I started looking for a preschool subscription when my daughter NJ was two and a half and loved walking with me to our community mailbox. As a lover of snail mail, I started looking for the “perfect” snail mail subscription for her to enjoy. I wanted something bright and fun, with beautiful illustrations, a short story, a way for me to connect and engage with her. Most importantly, I wanted something affordable, without large shipping fees. I couldn’t find quite the right thing, and because of this, I started the work to bring my idea to life!
Over the past few years I’ve worked hard to create a preschool subscription that I believe is affordable and accessible to everyone. When you order a Petit Mail story postcard subscription, I still get excited and do a little dance of joy. Each and every time.” – Alison
Petit Mail is a bright, fun, affordable snail mail story postcard subscription for kids ages three to early reader.
Discover The JOY of Snail Mail
Petit Mail is the fun way to introduce a new generation to the joy of snail mail. Created and written by mom and entrepreneur Alison Butler, each story postcard is packaged, stamped and addressed by hand.
Every month, your Petit Mail story postcard arrives in your mailbox in a bright, colourful envelope, and is, most importantly, addressed with your child’s first name.
Being able to see their name in print is so wonderful, because children love finding something just for them in their mailbox.
There is always something new to discover!
Some months you might find an extra stamp or doodle on your envelope and your mail is sealed with coloured tape.
We want you to receive a durable, quality product, so each month story postcards are:
(+) full colour, double-sided, because we want you to get the most from a 5×7 inch postcard!
(+) printed on thick, quality cardstock that is not easily ripped. This is especially important for little hands.
(+) packaged in bright, fun colourful envelopes featuring stamps, embossing & tape, because we think all of the little details are important to the snail mail experience.
(+) most importantly, some months include little extras, like stickers and other goodies, because who doesn’t love a fun little surprise?

How A Petit Mail Preschool Subscription Works
Check the mailbox together regularly, talk & connect, explore your surroundings. Petit Mail story postcards arrive in your mailbox once per month.
Read & Play Together:
Read along with four diverse characters Olivia, Audrey, Milo and Oliver. Traditional subscriptions rotate through a different character each month, or you can “choose your own” option to receive story postcards from just one of the characters. Read your story card and use the monthly adventure as inspiration for family time activities. Spark your child’s imagination and encourage creative play. Oliver is putting on a puppet show? You can too!
Petit Mail story postcard themes include: art, writing, science, engineering, nature, reading, and creativity. Most of all, your postcards encourage imaginative play, all at an age-appropriate level.
